Well, new season, more ‘trapped-in-the-eighties’ garbage on show.

Interview with Danny Ward where they were asking him about DewFest where Leeds players used to get on it in the “mucky pubs” around Dewsbury and Batley.

Then Wagga doing a “Gin Challenge” where he and another ex-player downed a goblet of gin, first to down it all wins.

Just what on Earth is this rubbish? Talk about painting the game in a backwards, out of date, absolutely terrible light! These are not current players but it’s still unprofessional. It was nearly as much a show about drinking as it was rugby.

A bit of a disgrace if I’m being honest! The clubs and SL or the RFL should be stepping in here, surely?

I’d go as far to say that we need to get Rugby AM off the tele if that’s what it’s going to carry in being like. It’d be better for the image of the sport to get rid of it and have less rugby league programming on tele, than actually have that sort of thing on!

Just wait until Backchat comes back on from that pub straight out of 1980. :roll:

That programme is god awful. As is rugby am for that matter.

That said they’re on a pretty obscure channel that I don’t think will be picked up on unless you are a fan of the game.

First priority for me is the dated sky sports team.

I've absolutely no idea how they've got this show as far as it has. Fair play to them for that.

If you're a bit thick, shout a lot and love to talk about getting into trouble and drinking then you'll fit right in with Simmons and his band of idiots.

Rugby AM abysmal . Why anyone would choose to watch the programme is unfathomable it is comparable to a cross between a children’s school project and Prisoner Cell Block H .

Contrary to what most seem to think the most recent episode with Oli Holmes and the piece about the England Lions PNP tour was good! Given that there is absolutely feck all abour Rugby League on main stream TV, along with Backchat, its got to be better than nowt at all! Give it a chance! (OK another one!)

Rugby AM is an embarrassment to Rugby League.
The set is awful, the filming is awful and the content is cringeworthy anyone involved in this programme should be embarrassed.

I shudder to think what anyone Rugby Union , Darts , Netball or Curling fan would make of the programme.

I've been banging on how Simmons and Godwin year in year out embarras rugby league with a total dogpoop of a show.

People defend it though cos it's "publicity" or something. I think Leeds fans like it for some reason.
